Asher Fisch is the Principal Conductor and Artistic Adviser at the West Australian Symphony Orchestra (WASO), and today he sat down with the Governor as part of our Conversations at Government House series.
The chat will be shown later in the year but it was a chance for the Governor and Mr Fisch to catch-up and chat about his work with WASO, and the Governor’s passionate support of the orchestra both as Patron and as a lover of WA arts and culture.
The conversation continued into the evening with the Governor and Ms Annus welcoming Mr Fisch, WASO Chief Executive Officer Mr Paul Shannon, Honorary Patron Janet Holmes à Court and Mr Gilbert George to Government House to discuss advancing the interest and reach of WASO across WA.
